Why would performers need a physical therapist?
The first question I get asked when I tell someone I work with Broadway and concert productions is: Why would performers need a physical therapist?
The answer is quite simple. Repetition. The performers on a Broadway stage make it look easy because they are the best in their field. When we go to a performance, we are only seeing 1/8th of their workweek. They are performing the same show 8 times a week and that’s not including rehearsals or taking dance classes.
